Managing Professional Teachers
Middle Management in Primary and Secondary Schools


October 1995 | 176 pages | SAGE Publications Ltd
`It is an easy read but a book with substance; to be read chapter by chapter or to dip into for advice. Yes, I would recommend this book to others. Certainly a book for the staff library and one that I expect to see on many a course reading list' - Management in Education

This book provides a different approach to management development for teachers holding positions of responsibility in schools below the level of senior management. It argues that practical help for managers in schools lies in developing a sound understanding of the nature of their job rather than following recipes and applying formulae. Instead of offering a how-to-do-it recipe of `tips for teachers' which may or may not be helpful, it provides the means for teachers to analyse their work, its setting, and the attitudes and expectations of their colleagues, so that they can decide which techniques are likely to be helpful.
